Omar Khan is trying to work the phones to land a top wide receiver. The Pittsburgh Steelers general manager had another highly regarded draft over the weekend, landing four straight players below their predicted draft slot to start things off and checking off nearly ever box the Steelers had in terms of serious draft needs. But they still have a need at wide receiver.

How can they add someone, and who would the player be that would ideally fit what they can add to that room?

Nick Farabaugh joined Chris Carter on the Locked On Podcast to discuss what has made the search for a wide receiver so winding how they can find the right fit on the trade market, and how they can end up upgrading the room from either the trade market or free agency.

Plus, they broke down how third-round pick Roman Wilson will translate to the NFL and what they must target to help round out the wide receiver room, the leap that the offense can take if they end up acquiring that third wide receiver to tie things together, and the steps they need to take to ensure the offense works.
